In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Mahama said mothers, sisters and wives were toiling hard in the country and must be recognised

"Let's dedicate today to reflect on the toils of our mothers, sisters and wives. And let's commit to making the world a better place for all girls and women," he said.

The International Women's Day, originally called International Working Women's Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. It commemorates the struggle for women's rights.

Mahama's comment comes barely two days after he was widely praised on social media for being one of very few Ghanaians dignitaries to wear the official Ghana @ 60 cloth to the Ghana @ 60 parade.
